Endoscopic Vein Harvesting is a high-demand skillset! Based on your anticipated equipment, we will train you on either Maquet or Terumo EVH gear using our simulated operating room with complete endoscopic towers and proprietary high-fidelity saphenous vein simulator. You will leave this course with a thorough understanding of the process of EVH, but realize this is a skill which will require you to be proctored in a surgical environment for many cases before being competent to perform independently.
This course can be scheduled as a 1:1 course or as a 2 person group course. This course is simply like no others.
Take the opportunity to learn an introduction to the technique of endoscopic vein harvesting through the use of a dynamic simulator with real OR equipment.
This includes both the harvesting AND vein preparation simulation once successfully harvested with the use of brach ligation techniques and reverse vein cannulation for a simulated greater saphenous vein using the Maquet Hemopro or Terumo Virtuosaph EVH. This course provides up to 4hrs of 1:1 or small group training in an extremely realistic environment using real OR gear and a state of the art vessel simulation trainer.
Due to the technical complexity of this concept, this is a private course and your purchase should be preceded by a conversation and a mutually agreed upon time and date with our instructor.
